Now a Malayalee has proven yet again that at any age you can achieve anything you want to be. However, its the urge or craving in one that gets him where he want to be. The more the urge or the craving the faster one reaches his milestone.

Luka Joseph, aged 64, an employee with the KSRTC retired from the service and decided to do something which he wanted do always in life. His ambition to become a lawyer never materialised as life’s travails took in a different direction. But he never gave up his dream to attain the LLB even when he was in his 60s.
